Steve Mead, Artistic Director, Manchester Jazz Festival

“Maja conjures up a magical atmosphere with her deceptively simple material and the most intimate of expressive instruments: a lone ‘cello. Her music has the power to transform the space around her yet reflect and absorb it, and in doing so she creates an almost meditative-like state in the listener. We are transported into a world of undulating landscapes, distant echoes and slowly-evolving patterns by music which has the strange ability to convey – at the same time – the familiar and the unfamiliar.”
